The Wednesday Sell-Off

  • **completely untrue ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  • A lot of people must of just realised xmas is coming

  • I've had a nice week because i've held Dele, Jesus and Grealish but I've got a lot of players in the sell que and no one's shifting at the moment.
    Very little liquidity in the market. Going to be like this until some sort of announcement. I just hope it's something to attract new users not squeeze more out of current users as I think that we've been milked dry

  • @Chris-J winter break coming and the impending announcement. Very up and down too, I suspect if you log in tonight itl be a healthier picture... Last night I made about 1% between 7 and 8pm! Having had a poor morning.

    Announcement have an annoying affect, people sitting on cash balances etc. Hopefully they come out with it sooner or later

  • My port is completely static going by the overall profit but the dividends are still coming in so still making money

  • Like @Vespasian32 I was up a good bit yesterday evening but down double what I was up now I reckon.
    Nothing to worry bout, all part n parcel of FI ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  • Look at kane for instance went 6 to 5.97 back to 6 back to 5.98....doesnt make a difference...and my whole port is doing this through the day it seems so some fairly large adjustments if I chdck regularly.. But if i just check at midday on a Saturday my port is up.

  • @Vespasian32 the strange thing with kane though, was when he scored last night he didn't even raise a penny, he actually went down 1p

  • @Chris-J said in The Wednesday Sell-Off:

    My port is taking a kicking this morning despite holding Kroos and a few players that could star tonight.

    Looking at the decrease list I guess itโ€™s the same for most of us (I expect some smug git to pipe up and tell us how his port is actually flying!) - I guess itโ€™s the combination of profit taking from the huge rises most of us have seen recently and Christmas withdrawals.

    Probably going to continue until we get this Dec/Jan announcement which Iโ€™d imagine FI will understandably delay to squeeze as much commission out of this period as possible.


    Down a little, Kane and Vardy. I withdrew a temporary 5-figure sum on Monday in anticipation that the sell-off will occur for Xmas. If there is a deposit bonus for Dec/Jan, then I'll put it back temporary to get the maximum bonus.

  • @Chris-J I think the Xmas withdrawal is underestimated. Time to shut up shop for me until January...๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Starting to see talk about the PB cycle possibly being at an end but my players that are performing well on the PB matrix are absolutely flying, those that are performing indifferently are performing indifferently, and the one with a perceived threat of not transferring to a PB league as generally has been expected is tanking.

    It seems that my port performance is being dictated entirely by PB

  • @Chris-J Real Madrid played last night mate, no chance of Kroos staring tonight...

    ๐ŸŽถToni Kroos, he plays when he wants, Toni Kroos, he plays when he wants ๐ŸŽถ ๐Ÿคฃ

  • @9stevo Excuse the poorly structured sentence I meant them to be separate entities.

    Kroos still rising from last night and a number of players who are likely to perform well tonight.

  • @Chris-J
    My port has been dropping for over a week. Iโ€™ve mostly PB players and theyโ€™ve not been hitting the dividend wins so people are IS them. Iโ€™m not too worried as I resigned myself to a dropping port till Christmas.

  • @Chris-J fair play, I did have to check the fixtures twice to make sure I wasn't losing the plot!! he should be able to play two champions league night in a row though, imagine the PB!!!

  • @Chris-J Thanks for the honesty! Glad it's not just me. I joined 2 weeks ago and had been happily in the green from the start feeling quite smug. 48 hours later and come back down to earth with a bump๐Ÿ˜‚! Most my ports are now in the red although I have made good divs. I know I need to be patient as my strategy was always to hold. Just wish I could fast forward my portfolio 6 months!

  • @Impulsesplurger All part of the learning curve on FI.
    I was down I think for my first month more or less, patience and research is key ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  • and also those thinking the 12 rockets thing could be some sort of bonus and want the cash ready to put back in etc... always happens when their is some news of something coming.

  • @Impulsesplurger with a username like that it doesnโ€™t surprise me that you are in the red!

    In all seriousness donโ€™t be too concerned with any losses during this period - a boom always follows these dips, just have to ride it out.

    Try not to become an impulse seller ๐Ÿ˜‰
